This is the final post showcasing the vintage items that I bought at this Sale.

But first, I want to Thank Jody and Stan, over at Rooted in Thyme, for featuring my post,  A Tale of 2 Dove Families, from last week's Simple and Sweet Fridays party!!
 Thanks so much, Jody and Stan!!


I also want to Thank Laurie, over at My Husband Has Too Many Hobbies, for featuring my post.A Tribute to the Mothers in my Family, From last week's Snickerdoodle Sunday Party!!
Thanks so much, Laurie!!

Please take the time to stop by and link up to these great parties!!

I almost cried for joy when I saw these red transfer ware pieces!!
This is the marking on the bottom of all the pieces......
There were 5 Dessert Plates.....
5 Saucers.....
4 Soup Bowls.....
1 Vegetable Bowl......
I love the trim on these dishes!!

And a Creamer and Sugar Bowl!!!
Look at the lid of the Sugar Bowl!!
There is a different scene on each side......

The other side.....

One side of the creamer....

 The other side......


All this for $20!!!!!
They will go nicely with the other pieces of red transfer ware that I already have......
 The top plate is one of the Dessert Plates that I just bought......
 I have several Dinner Plates in this pattern......
 This is the marking on the Dinner Plates.....
 And I have several Cereal Bowls in these patterns......
 The marking on these Bowls......
 And the marking on these Bowls.....
 And you can see that I already have the Sugar Bowl and Creamer on display in my China Cupboard in the Den!!
 They look quite good with my Soup Tureen!!

What I don't have is Tea Cups....

I only have 2 in the red so I will now be on the look out for red transfer ware Tea Cups!!

The past week, we finally had some nice weather so I have been working out in the back trying to get the Patio set up and the back yard straightened out.

I have been doing a lot of spray painting of patio furniture.

I will also be buying all my annuals since I think the threat of frost is over!!  Hopefully....

We also decided to give the single bed that I have had in the Guest Room since my youngest son moved out , to one of our neighbors who will be having her 2 sons come and live with her.

We have never had any "Guests" stay over in the 37 years that we are married and have not used that single bed in the 8 years since my son moved out and our chances of having any grand children look pretty slim so I decided that instead of a "Guest Room", I would rather have a "Sitting Room"!!

We are now on the look out for a nice recliner for that room. A lot of times when I am not feeling well, I will go downstairs and prop myself up on the sofa so I thought that I could use a nice comfy recliner to sleep in instead during those times.

 I think I will get to enjoy that room more by making it into a "Sitting Room" where I can go to read and listen to music!

 I will have a LOT to share in the future along with my Patriotic Decor for the Summer!!

So I hope you will be back to visit soon!!

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!

What a great item!!
These will be perfect in my Kitchen!!

Check out the label on it!!
This is a square hand embroidered topper that I might make into a valance or little curtain to hang in the cupboard area of our counter bar in the Kitchen....
I still am working on trying to get the back yard and patio set up and ready for Summer but we are still having crazy weather ......

We had Hail on Sunday with frost!!
That is the ice on the front porch chair cushion!!

My In Laws had a dusting of snow!!!!

It is now the 4th coldest May on record here in NEPA!!
